Summary:
Voice over IP (VoIP) is revolutionizing the global communications system by allowing human voice and fax information to travel over existing packet data networks along with traditional data packets. The convergence of voice and data in one simplified network brings both benefits and constraints to users. Among the several issues that need to be addressed when deploying this technology, security is one of the most critical. This thesis will present a combination of security patterns based on the systematic analysis of attacks against a VoIP network and the existing techniques to mitigate these attacks, providing good practices for all IP telephony systems. The VoIP Security Patterns which are based on object-oriented modeling, will help network designers to improve the level of security not only in voice but also in data, video, and fax over IP networks.
